of the carnival "triumph" being pushed towards mobile, alabama. jay gray is in mobile, alabama, where that ship was expected to dock within the next hour or so. jay, now we're hearing this could actually happen a lot later. >> reporter: yeah, jon. carnival cruise lines has confirmed that it will not dock until some time they say between 8:00 and 11:00 local time, central time. i just traded text messages with someone on the ship who tells me that they've been told midnight local time would be the earliest that they would make it in. so some confusion there. the process, according to carnival, taking longer than they initially thought it would. tugging this mass aive ship int the port here. 900 feet, 100,000 tons and getting it up the waterway here and to the port of mobile has just proved very difficult. in fact, they've added two tugs, four tugs will be involved in this process. and it's going to take some time as we talked about. once it does make it to the port, passengers will be allowed to leave for the first time since the ship's engine room caught fire losing propulsion. that was sunday.
